    How to change label position for individual labels.

    Asked by jmonette on April 05, 2017 at 05:08 PM

    I wish to have certain elements align differently on the same form - is that possible? Some questions I am asking I prefer the question to be above the option, and other sections I prefer the label to be right justified. Seems every time I adjust the alignment, it changes the whole form.



    Thank you! ;-)

    Yes, it is possible to change the label position for each field in your form, you need to do it through the field properties. 

    Here's a screen-cast about what I can see on my end: 

    Here's also the link to my form where you can see each label with different positions: https://form.jotform.com/61906789189980 

    Could you please test on your form and let us know if this it not the same you're seeing on your end? 

    We'll wait for your response.

    I know how to change the alignment. My question is can I have different alignments on the same form?

    Problem I am having is that when I change the alignment on one element it changes it for the whole form!!

    You can change the alignment of separate elements but you will have to have the ID of the element you want to align. You can check this guide on how to find the ID of the element in HTML: http://kb.oboxthemes.com/articles/how-to-get-css-styles-for-elements/

    And more about the Custom CSS in our forms here: https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    Also, you can share the form ID to us and tell us how you want it adjusted so we can do that for you.

    Thank you!
